Are there any examples of where a restoration of such a building has been done properly?

Whilst I agree that protected structures should be protected the steps one must take to gain planning permission are incredibly onerous and, ultimately, very expensive – much more so than you would ever gain back in rent on places like Thomas Street. And a tenant won’t want to be freezing cold in the winter with condensation lashing down the windows

We bemoan owners for letting buildings fall into disrepair but not everyone is a slumlord. Some people can’t get the money for improvements because the rental vs refurb equation just doesn’t stack with the bank. In some cases letting it fall down is cheaper.
